Frontier Airlines Declares It's Colorado Proud16:00 EDT Monday, June 11, 2012 DENVER (Business Wire) -- Frontier Airlines is proudly declaring its love for its home state of Colorado with the addition of some well-known Colorado companies and products to its catering menu. This month, the Denver-based carrier added Boulder Canyon Kettle Chips, Colorado Native Beer, Evol Burritos and Mountain Man Almond Chocolate Cherry Crunch trail mix to its menu, which already features other well recognized Colorado products including Blue Moon, Coors Light, Fat Tire Amber Ale, Horizon organic milk and IZZE sparkling juice. “We are fortunate to be based in a state that produces so many exceptional products,” said Dan Krause, Frontier's vice president of marketing and customer experience. “Our new catering lineup reflects Frontier's Colorado heritage by focusing on local companies and products that are a true representation of what this great state has to offer. Just as we have received so much support from our fellow Coloradoans, we are proud to support our neighbor businesses while, at the same time, providing our customers with quality and unique inflight food and beverage options.” In April, Frontier announced that it would begin featuring additional Colorado beers on board that will rotate every couple of months and be selected by its Facebook fans. The first round of voting ended May 15 with Colorado Native Beer coming out as the favorite. Voting for the next Colorado brew will begin in August at Facebook.com/FrontierAirlines, with the winning brew appearing on board in October.
